Together for the first time: original paintings of Cat Swamp plants by Edward Peckham from the Rhode Island Historical Society, and corresponding specimens from the Brown University Herbarium, collected by William Bailey and others. The exhibit showcases the rich history of art and science in Providence and we hope it provokes you to consider the consequences of environmental change on local biodiversity. The exhibit is a unique collaboration between the John Hay Library, The Brown University Herbarium, the Rhode Island Historical Society and the Rhode Island Wild Plant Society.
